The film “Wish” was released in Japan to celebrate Disney’s 100th anniversary. It has mixed reviews, with some praising it for shaking up the status quo and others criticizing it for political messaging and distracting references to past Disney films.
The story is set in the kingdom of Rosas, where King Magnifico manages and grants his subjects’ wishes. He only fulfills the ones that suit him, storing the rest away. Asha, a 17-year-old girl, discovers this and wishes on a star to return the citizens’ ungranted wishes to them.
The film has gained popularity in Japan and the United States, with both positive and negative reviews. The co-directors explained that the movie is about wishing and the character’s wishes coming down to Earth, with entertainment possibilities. They also said the film reflects the strength of Disney in creating diversity through new challenges.
The film has been praised for its focus on “class” and ordinary people uniting against the king. It has also been criticized for being too political. The co-directors believe that diverse storytelling is important and that there will be many new filmmakers who can offer diverse storytelling as the world connects easily now.
